Soup to Nuts…A Thrifty Bird Feeder


One of my favorite things to do on a weekend is to head out on a little road trip- for the day or overnight- and part of my adventure ALWAYS involves seeking out the Goodwill(s) in whatever town I explore.

Happening Short-ly in West Columbia…


It’s the most patriotic time of year, the one between Memorial Day and Labor Day. We have plenty of occasions and just plain old Tuesdays to don symbols of Old Glory right on our bodies for all to see.

This post was originally going to be about making an overly patriotic T-shirt for my husband. But then I thought, let’s get a little more American here. Let’s get super red, white and blue. Let’s use denim, one of America’s premier fabrics, and really go to town on it.

Let’s chop up a pair of jeans from Goodwill and get so full of pride for this country that fireworks start to shoot out of our fingertips.

Patch Perfect Cutoffs


Last week I had to mend some of my husband’s jeans. I kept one pair of his old jeans to use the fabric for patching. As I was cutting into one leg, I realized the jeans were (accidentally) being formed into a great pair of cutoffs.

This gave me an idea for a quick project: cutoffs for the summer! I decided to use men’s jeans because the fit is more relaxed. Also, most jeans made for women have some stretch in them and those aren’t the best for cutoffs. Read More >
